Migratory Game Bird Hunting Season Dates & Bag Limits

Hunting Regulations Icon New York Hunting

Migratory game bird hunting regulations are set by the federal government in consultation with state agencies. Due to a change in the federal regulation setting process, migratory game bird seasons are now finalized by mid-June or early July. Final season dates and bag limits are now available in time to be published in the annual hunting guide; pocket references for migratory game bird seasons are also available from regional DEC offices upon request or by emailing wildlife@dec.ny.gov.
